foreign policy in the middle east, the camp david accord, is in jeopardy. the brotherhood campaigned against it, morsi questioned it. the central premise of land for peace is at issue. you have a lot of other questions about the brotherhood's domestic policies in egypt but from the u.s. point of view, egypt's relationship with israel is at the center. following that, what is egypt's relationship with? morsi visited iran. i'm worried about that relationship and russian evans efforts to reestablish their ties. we're in for a worrying time in the middle east, but particularly in the relationship with egypt. >> not optimistic more 2013. embassador bolton, always good to see you, merry christmas. >> they can't to you and jamey. >> thank you so much. we have news about an international peace envoy from the u.n. headed to syria as chaos erupts. lockdarr will meet with bashar al-assad. he has had a hard time making headway in ending the civil war because neither side is interested in peace talks but he'll arrive to violence. there are reports of several people killed by a car bomb this weeke
cannot conduct effective negotiations with the united states when the foreign policy decisions of the federal governments are undermined by the individual policies of individual states. how do you respond to that? >> well, the federal government does legitimately have a monopoly on foreign relations and we haven't interfered with that, we haven't opened up embassies or consulates we're simply within the wonders in the states of arizona. they're disagreeing-- a foreign country disagrees with our laws on our state for illegal activity that therefore that becomes a matter of international relakeses and a federal court can then invalidate an otherwise invalid state law because a foreign country disagrees with it and if they think we're interfering with foreign relations, that's a very dangerous argument and i think it's important that the courts strike down that kind of argument. >> kelly: couldn't you also go to the argument, well, if you feel that our law is so tough and you have something else this minor aspect of sb-1070 which is what it's known as in arizona, then why do you c
obama's foreign policy is feckless and weak? >> i'm saying, you make your own decision. two years ago the middle east was a stable place, a government that was pro-american. they were not at war with israel. fast forward two years later, we have been very involved in toppling those dictators in the middle east but we have stepped back as those countries struggled to find new governments. they found islamist governments. we did not help them in pro democracy election. whether you talk about libya, vipt or any of the countries they were all a lot worse off than two years ago. i think the secretary of state has a lot to answer for and to explain why. what did do wrong to have the policies that have allowed the united states essentially to be blamed for most of the problems in the middle east today. >> gregg: the benghazi diplomatic mission was going to be a dangerous place. there had been previous attacks in and around it before the september 11th terror attack that killed four individuals. should we ask pretty direct questions about why you weren't protecting those people? >> yeah. what
announcing the first member of his new foreign policy team on friday. nominating massachusetts senator john kerry to become his next secretary of state, the move as the administration faces a host of pressing issues from the fallout over the september 11th terror attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, to growing unrest in the middle east, as well as asia. our peter doocy has been following the story and live from washington. what are the details of the nominee? >> kelly, back in 2004, senator kerry let then state senator barack obama speak at his nomination, and it was a road to the white house. and yesterday at the white house president obama nominated kerry to be secretary of state in his second term. >> in a sense, john's entire life has prepared him for this role. as a son of a foreign service officer, he has a deep respect for the men and women of the the state department, the role they play in advancing our interests and values, the risks that they undertake and the sacrifice that is they make along with their families. >> issues with iran, syria and north korea are the most press
the president has advocated in this foreign policy? >> yes. >> is that the root cause? >> i think the root cause is not being adequately or not adequately understanding the nature of the evil threat of the the -- the evil of the threat and taking leadership steps and making sure our embassy security and the personnel with whom we are allied with are protected. the people deployed abroad are unbelievably good people who do for us the american people an important service. they need to be protected and regrettably there was a break, a systemic failure. >> 10 seconds or less. she has said that she will testify in mid-january. do you have any reason to doubt that? >> i don't know. the fact that she wasn't here has not testified during these several monthsment we -- several months. to have the secretary of state come up and give an accounting right after this occurred to tell us exactly who knew what and when and the chain of command. was she aware of the incredible risks that went unheeded. >> congressman chris smith. thank you very much. >> the muss 4reu78 brotherhood is claiming a second round on a
country as great as it is. that foreign policy record we have is something to be proud of. that is not to say we should be putting boots on the ground or putting our men and women in harm's way but i think we do have an opportunity, or at least, you know, a chance to start to comprise some policies that could help steer syria out of this and also we obviously need to be worrying about iran, its nuclear program and its meddling in the politics and policies of some of our allies in the region. jamie: i'm not exaggerating, but sometimes i lock my door at night i think about iran. it is so scary. if people don't follow it they should. we're a little stretched now in the united states. we have boots on the ground and we have a lot of other things. it is very difficult to get intel on iran. they are surely fueling syria and all the violence that's going on there. even russia has been a bit hands off. what could we do? >> well, you know, first of all, iran's fingerprints are all over syria. i think that is undeniable. they continue to help the syrians crack down on this insurrect
